Hi! My name is Faye, and I am an aspiring educator. I graduated with honors from the University of Rochester, where I double-majored in Applied Mathematics
, and I recently received a Master of Science
in Bioengineering from UCLA. My subject specialties include mathematics, chemistry, and biology
in addition to preparation for the SAT
, and GED
My teaching experience ranges from interning in elementary and middle school classrooms to working as a teaching assistant (TA) for fourteen courses over the past six years. I received the prestigious Carl A. Whiteman, Jr. Teaching Award from the University of Rochester for my work as a TA. Here is a sample of an anonymous review a student chose to provide on my teaching at UCLA:
“Faye was an excellent TA! She was very knowledgeable and presented the material in a very clear and organized way. She was very friendly and approachable and got to know each of her students. She provided extra homework problems, suggested readings, and review sessions to help her students. Great TA!”
I will work diligently by your side to ensure a thorough understanding of any concepts you hope to master. I take it as my responsibility to help you gain the skills and confidence necessary for learning both inside and outside the classroom. My teaching approach is down-to-earth and individually-molded based on a student’s preferred learning style.
All of my first appointments with students are completely free consultations on the material that will need to be covered. This is a perfect time to see if we are a good fit for each other and to outline the goals we hope to achieve. The consultation will also give me the information I need to prepare extra review material for you.
My schedule is flexible and I will do my best to accommodate changes in session times. I have a 24-hour cancellation policy, but I will offer make-up sessions as necessary.
We can discuss meeting places for our tutoring sessions on a personal basis, since every student will have different needs and schedules.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions on my qualifications or availability. I am really looking forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your learning goals!
